Top of the pop-ups

There are still spaces available at a number of unique OctoberFeast pop-up dining experiences. Take your pick from Tudor feasting to foraging and fermentation; from a tribute to Tom Kerridge to a round-the-world hop. And if you still have room left over, check out our events page for more listings.

Adventures in Taste
Sept 23rd

Our Adventures in Taste pop-up will take you around the world, starting with a complimentary Prosecco and stuffed dates, followed by a selection of tasting plates. From North Africa we have harissa dressed cous-cous with melon and feta mint yoghurt; a stop off in Europe for herby ricotta cakes; Gochujang lettuce cups and quick pickles from Korea; Brazilian black beans and mango salsa; and back home in time for dessert of gooseberry shortcake.

Cakes & Ale
Sept 24th

Our dinner references Shakespeare in the 400th anniversary but is modern cooking inspired by Tudor traditions. It also has a basis on ale brewed by my daughter. I lived in Flanders for a while so I am using the beer to cook the beef to a rather substantial stew, rich and strong-tasting but not of ale. I have won prizes for my baking so there will be home baked bread and savoury cakes – fascinating cakes eaten by the French and containing herbs and cheeses. We are going to make some posset – a drink from Tudor times and the whole will be accompanied by plentiful vegetables and various goodies. Hazel

A Tribute to Tom Kerridge
Sept 24th

This is the sixth year we are doing a pop-up supper in the Lewes OctoberFeast and I’ll be cooking a tribute to Tom Kerridge this Saturday the 24th. After eating at his pub the Hand & Flowers earlier this year I thought the food was so good, but appeared to be simply done, that I’d like to cook some of his dishes as a tribute. We still have a few places available if you would like to come. Tony

A Foraged & Fermented Feast
Sept 30th

On a sunny Sunday in  Lewes, Jane Fairman and I met on a market stall and a magical connection and recognition of two ancient arts came together! We have lovingly conjured up two events for Octoberfeast to tickle and tantalise tastebuds and minds alike. The first is a Foraged and Fermented Feast.  This six-course, vegetarian pop-up supper in central Lewes, will include locally foraged foods from the wilds of East Sussex and also exciting edibles that have been lovingly fermented here in Lewes. Our second event is a Foraging and Fermenting Day where Jane will take you foraging in the morning around Landport Bottom and then you will enjoy a delicious foraged and fermented light lunch. Afterwards, you can sit back and learn all about the magic, mystery and history of fermenting with me. Ana

A Toast to Shakespeare
New date: Nov 25th

Spices have been used in British cookery since the Romans invaded our shores. They were particularly prevalent during the mediaeval period but they were still widely used and liked during the Tudor times. Many of the recipes from this era feature spices such as the spinach tart I will be serving as my first course at the Toast to Shakespeare supper at Anne of Cleves House on 23 September 2016. This vibrant tart is delicately spiced with cinnamon and coriander and is adapted from a recipe in Gervase Markham’s The English Huswife dating from 1615. Sam
